The Task Force is committed to supporting data-informed change through methodologically sound and trauma-informed practices within the anti-trafficking movement.
One of the most critical identified needs of human trafficking victims and survivors in Louisiana is housing and shelter.
The Greater New Orleans Human Trafficking Task Force (GNOHTTF), in collaboration with the Louisiana Coalition Against Human Trafficking (LCAHT) aims to create an in-depth victim/survivor shelter directory to aid in the process of identifying services for people who have experienced trafficking. These results will help partners throughout the state triage potential clients to the correct facility based on their needs. If you or your organization provide housing and are willing to serve trafficking victims, please participate in this survey. It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. You can help us as we conduct a community resource inventory and create this Trafficking Survivor Housing Directory. The goals of this survey are to:
- Conduct a community resource inventory to determine which organizations are providing which services in our community;
- Create an in-depth housing directory that will provide case managers and survivors a detailed explanation of services provided, requirements, and demographics served;
- Identify gaps in the housing/shelter sector in our region by collecting data, and determine pathways to fill those service gaps.
Any housing provider willing to take trafficking victims (including shelters with a focus on a parallel population such as domestic violence or homelessness, OR shelters who have never knowingly served this population before but are willing to in the future) are welcome to take part in this survey.
